“Since the discovery of her negatives in a Chicago storage locker in 2007, Vivian Maier (1926-2009) has garnered international attention for her poignant street photography, almost none of which she printed during her lifetime. Including street scenes from Chicago and New York in the 50s and 60s, as well as striking self-portraits, Vivian Maier: A Woman’s Lens will be the first showing of the mysterious photographer’s work in the Greater Boston area. Don’t miss this opportunity to view a rare talent whose rich, and little-known, life story is still unfolding.”

Vivian Maier’s Fractured Archive: A Woman’s Story
A slide presentation by Pamela Bannos
Wednesday, October 16, 2013 at 6:30 pm

After receiving privileged access to 20,000 Vivian Maier images, including her earliest known work, Paul Bannos–Distinguished Senior Lecturer, Department of Art Theory & Practice, Northwestern University–elucidates how Maier’s disjointed archive complicates our reading of her life and motivations. This presentation will explore a paradoxical life and its messy aftermath, and examine the emergence of Maeier’s lifelong passion through eyes other than her own.”

April 4th, Milwaukee: “Vivian Maier: Out of the Shadows” A Lecture by Richard Cahan & Jeffrey Goldstein

Milwaukee, TALK  Maier-Cover
Lecture by Richard Cahan & Jeffrey Goldstein,
Vivian Maier: Out of the Shadows

Thursday, April 4, 2013 at 7:00 pm
Free and open to the public; seating is limited.

Milwaukee, TALK welcomes Richard Cahan, co-author of Vivian Maier: Out of the Shadows, and art collector Jeffrey Goldstein for its first in a series of visiting artist lectures.  Vivian Maier, known as “the nanny photographer,” became an internet sensation after her work was put online soon after her death in 2009.  Since then, Maier’s work has been shown throughout Europe and in major cities across the United States.   Her story has been featured in major media outlets including NPR and The New York Times.  Vivian Maier: Out of the Shadows, released in October 2012, is the first book that tells her life story in pictures and words.

This book is based on the largely unseen collection of more than 16,000 Maier negatives purchased by Jeffrey Goldstein. Many of the images are from negatives that were only recently processed.  Vivian Maier: Out of the Shadows presents the first glimpse into the personal story behind the artist whose posthumous photographs went viral.”
